MAN BEING FOR OTHERS

• Sartre also describes a third structure of being, being-for-others, which is


one’s being as it exists in the consciousness of another (referred to as “the
Other” by Sartre). Sartre’s analysis of this third structure of being leads him
to conclude, “I am responsible for my being-for-others, but I am not the
foundation of it” (BN 475). By this, Sartre is saying that you are responsible
for the way you appear in the consciousness of the Other.
BE HAPPY YOU ARE LOVED
(ROBERT H. SCHULLER)
• Even if you have lost everything- someone, somewhere needs your love.
• Even if you have failed in love- someone, somewhere can give you the
courage to try again.
• Even if you have failed in life- someone, somewhere, cares.
• Even if life has been unfair to you- someone, somewhere, needs you the way
you are.
• Even if you are poor- someone, somewhere will treasure you.
ELEMENTS OF
LOVE
1. KNOWLEDGE OF THE PERSON
-It is impossible for anyone to love someone he/she does not know.
2. FAITH OR TRUST IN THE PERSON
-Any person who is in love is willing to take this “risk” or what others describe to be a “reasonable
risk”.
3. HOPE
-Element needed although one knows the possibility of his love being betrayed or disappointed,
there must be hope that this would never happen.
4. CARE/CONCERN FOR THE GOOD OF THE OTHER
-While it is true that man is not capable of completely showing selfless love, he is, however, capable
of making the person of the beloved the motive for his love.
5. RESPECT
-It is because of respect that a person who loves is able to be truly responsive to the person loved.
6. RESPONSIBILITY
- Should not be equated with duties but should be more correlated with maturity which requires
giving of proper responses to persons, things, and situations.
